Select the column first by clicking the grey column heading. Then Edit > Find.

Ah, you mean you want a formula to search?

johnnyrocker is correct -

VLOOKUP(value, datarange, data column number in the range, FALSE)

Product code has to be to the left of price for this to work. Otherwise you'll need a combination of INDEX and MATCH.
